Goats are fun to raise, and many people milk goats for their own use (for milk, and maybe cheese or other goat milk products) and some milk goats commercially. Here are some tips for getting started with the best goats for milk.
Caroline Lawson (TLC Farms, Franklin, Texas) got her first goats in 1992. My husband and I bought property and needed an agricultural exemption, and goats seemed a good fit. We purchased Nubians from a petting zoo, and they were the foundation of our herd, she explains.
One thing led to another, and today we have about 30 goats, and I make soap and lotions from goat milk. This enterprise makes enough money to pay for their feed.
